Here are some pictures from the recent scrap quilt class. The block is directional, so it is considerably more difficult to get right than it looks! Nevertheless, everybody got it right by the end of the day. Here are a few of the blocks with their makers:
Here are a few of the larger blocks:
My next class at Studio Stitch in Greensboro is Twinkle on Thursday, February 21:
I looove this quilt! Join us if you can!
Hmm. Why would the block being directional make it “considerably more difficult to get right”? I looked at these blocks, and if you are working from a chart, I can’t see any difficulty at all in assembling them. Am I missing something?
It’s all very well if you look at the chart before each seam, but if you get in a hurry, the next thing you know the block is turned around. I know you to be a very precise seamstress from what I’ve seen of your work, but some of us are a little more slapdash and get ourselves in trouble 😬
I am one of the slapdashers…but this looks like great fun.
It is great because you can just cut up leftovers from each quilt as you go along, which means you soon have a quilt AND you aren’t adding to the scrap burden 😉
I started cutting leftovers and I have a quilt in the making…thanks to you!
Woo-hoo! Can’t wait to see it!
I do like scrappy designs — and especially the way the chain patches provide a “path” for the eye to follow.
Agree! I’ve become quite a fan of chain patches.
Looks like it was fun — and productive
It WAS fun 😁
While I love brights, my fav here is the first one – Gail’s.
And the nice thing is that if you use your own scraps you get your fav colors 🙂
I wish I could join your class! I loved the student pieces and then that very yummy quilt that closed out the post! My scraps are calling me after reading your post 🙂
Go for it! There are always plenty of scraps!
